Employers are consistently demanding more qualifications from credit staff in today’s complex business world. Training from AICM is well regarded in the credit industry and demonstrates a genuine commitment to your career and expertise as a credit professional. 

The AICM Credit Expo is your opportunity to discover which training options can best help you to achieve your goals, whilst working within your schedule. A wide range of full qualifications to single modules are available, which can either kickstart a new career or further advance those of experienced professionals.


WHY Study with AICM?

Ensuring suitable qualifications are held by Credit Professionals is vital to all businesses as Credit Professionals are the custodians of many businesses largest asset (the Accounts Receivable Ledger) and ensure efficient sales to payment process by mitigating the risks of slow cash flow and bad debts.

The skills and knowledge required to be a proficient Credit Professional have been impacted by today's complex business world and times of high corporate insolvency and bankruptcy. This emphasises the importance of effective risk assessment and the timely monitoring and collection of receivables and the skills and knowledge of those tasked with these responsibilities.

The Credit Function is a highly specialised function of a business requiring specific knowledge and skills including Risk Analysis, Accounting, Dispute resolution, Legal, Insolvency, debt collection and general business skills.  Each individual needs to possess the full knowledge and skill set in order to ensure the efficient operation of the Credit Function and business.




WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Any individual or employer that is interested in investing in the future of their organisation, and building a skilled credit team, to ensure that they meet the compliance requirements ASIC Regulatory Guide 206 Credit Licensing: Competence and training. 

The Expo will also highlight individual units available for Professional Development, and allow organisations the opportunity to discuss customised training to meet individual business needs. The Credit Toolbox Series has been an outstanding success nationally, and we will have an overview of the series on the day, delivered by our experienced facilitator.

Obtain a qualification

The AICM offers 3 Qualifications which include subjects for those new to the credit industry through to those at a managerial level

Meet a pressing training need

All of the modules of the qualifications can be taken individually without commitment to the full qualification.  These units will count towards the completion of the full qualification subject to the currency of those units.

Note: Our qualifications and individual modules are primarily delivered via an interactive online learning environment with all assessments conducted by assessors with significant industry experience who are also available to guide your learning. Some modules are available via face to face classes, subject to availability. 
 

Recognise prior learning (RPL)

If you have studied Credit Management previously or overseas you may be able to obtain recognition of that prior learning.  The National requirements to obtain RPL are subject to evidence criteria and time limits to ensure currency.  The AICM can work with you to select the best approach for your circumstances.

You may also be able to enrol for assessment only relying on your prior learning and current knowledge. This may help you to obtain the qualification at a reduced cost.

Bespoke and in-house training

Our training experts can work with you design training to meet your company’s needs.  We are able to help identify training needs and to then develop and facilitate a targeted in-house training program to achieve the organisation’s identified outcomes.  As AICM Learning Services is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), we are able to offer National accreditation for the training undertaken. This provides motivation to the participants and is a valuable pathway for further learning and qualifications.

In-house training is usually cost effective for classes of 8 or more and can be for a full qualification or individual modules.

Credit Toolbox Series

Credit Toolbox courses are a unique opportunity to learn and refresh on the fundamentals of Credit Management from Credit Professionals with extensive real world experience.

The courses have been designed by the AICM's most experienced Credit Management Trainer to ensure all courses cover the fundamentals required to understand what and why credit professionals do what they do.

  • Established credit professionals seeking a refresher.

Traineeship Funding

Government funding arrangements vary from State to State currently there are no funding arrangements that the AICM is able to access directly or co-ordinate.  The most relevant funding we are aware of is Traineeship funding. 

Traineeships can be a useful mechanism to support an organisation’s professional development of new and existing staff. Traineeship funding is not limited by age.

However traineeship funding is subject to other eligibility requirements e.g. no prior qualifications in a related area. 

If you are considering accessing traineeship funding you should initially consult with the Apprenticeship Centre of your choice. The Apprenticeship Centre will determine eligibility and advise which qualification(s) is available for funding.
